The 2017 season was not kind to Jordy Nelson.
He missed the Week 2 game against the Atlanta Falcons due to a quadriceps strain, and Aaron Rodgers suffered a fractured clavicle against the Minnesota Vikings early in Week 6. Brett Hundley completed that game and started the next eight contests. With Rodgers out, Nelson's production took a major hit as he failed to eclipse 50 yards receiving or score a touchdown in any game Hundley started. Rodgers did return for Week 15 against the Carolina Panthers, but Nelson was limited to only 3 receptions for 28 yards on 6 targets in that one.
Nelson finished the year with 53 receptions (on 88 targets), 482 yards, and 6 touchdowns for 137.2 PPR points. That was "good" enough for a measly WR48 campaign, his worst fantasy finish since 2012.
In March, the Green Bay Packers cut him, freeing up more than $10 million in cap savings. After 10 years with the Packers, does Nelson have anything left in the tank to help your fantasy team in 2018?
